Kabul (BNA) Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Industry says Afghanistan exports have increased by 40% during the first quarter of current year.
“Afghanistan exports have risen to $ 100 million in the first three months of this year, showing 40% increase comparing to last year,” ACCI chairman Qurban Mohammad Haqjo said. Reduction of natural disasters and solution of problems in borders have caused such increase in country’s exports.
According to Sayed Mustafa Hashimi, head of Afghanistan exports development, exporting of fresh fruits of the country has increased to 6000 tons this year, while the export of fresh fruits last year was only 4000 tons. Hashimi says there are still some obstacles towards the increase of Afghanistan exports as high customs, lack of transportation facilities and shortages of standardized spring houses in the country. Head of exports development for ACCI Najla Habibyar says we are at a time when foreign forces withdrawal from Afghanistan is accompanied by rumors that could put negative impacts on investment in the country, but fortunately the rumors couldn’t stop investment process in Afghanistan.
Habibyar further said domestic products as fresh and dried fruits, handicrafts as carpets and agricultural products were on the top of exported goods. She asked Afghan producers and merchants to put Afghan brand on their products.
